We asked ChatGPT what patient-centered care is.
Patient-centered care is contrasted with the traditional medical model, where healthcare providers have more control over treatment decisions, and patients have a passive role in the healthcare process. In the traditional medical model, the focus is primarily on the diagnosis and treatment of a medical condition. In contrast, in patient-centered care, the focus is on the overall well-being and health of the individual. Patient-centered care recognizes that healthcare is not just about treating illness but also promoting health and preventing disease.
